LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) is disappointed by the Kentucky Court of Appeal’s decision today to reverse a lower court’s dismissal of a lawsuit filed by Gov. Matt Bevin’s administration against PPINK.
“As the ruling states, this decision is not a statement on the merits of the case,” said Christie Gillespie, President and CEO of PPINK. “PPINK sought the advice of the governmental agency charged with overseeing licensure and followed its guidance. We did nothing wrong, and we are confident the courts will agree. We are committed to providing high-quality health care for all at our Kentucky health centers, and we will continue to do so while this case is litigated.”
PPINK filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit in March 2016. Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Mitch Perry ruled to dismiss the lawsuit in July 2016, and the Bevin administration appealed the ruling.
